Day 1: Wind & Solar Power projects
This course day is aimed at anyone wishing to acquire a broad overview of what is involved in a wind and solar power project. Through introduction to the key stages of the project lifecycle, including development, construction, operation, and decommissioning, the course addresses the key risks arising and the steps that a project owner can take to optimize a project from the design stage onwards.
As well as covering general topics associated with any project, this course day will give a brief overview of considerations for both wind and solar power projects. More detailed courses covering specific areas of technical specialism on wind and solar are available.
Day 2: Technical risks in Wind & Solar Power investments
DNV has gained valuable real life experience working with project stakeholders to minimize and mitigate technical risks in wind and solar power projects. Focusing on cash flow and project finance lending, the course will cover typical technical issues that might arise during the investment review process, and steps that can be taken to reduce or address risks.
